Recently a question on twitter caught my attention:
“How do you stay on task?“
It’s a good question.
For people who procrastinate.
For people who are prone to distraction.
For people with a lot of choice.
For people who are overwhelmed.
Here’s the verbatim response I gave on twitter:
- 1: Use Pomodoro technique.
- 2: Ensure I’ve the necessary resources needed – time, energy, information & tools.
- 3: Ensure notifications are turned off.
- When I’m working with people, I’d add a 4th – ensure that people know not to interrupt me.
How do you stay on task? The more you do, the more you’ll accomplish!
